Classics in Group Psychotherapy

Front Cover
K. Roy MacKenzie, American Group Psychotherapy Association
Guilford Press, Feb 14, 1992 - Psychology - 356 pages
A gift to the reading audience of contemporary group psychotherapists, social group workers and T-Group consultants. In one volume it likely includes some of the most seminal material on the development and explication of practice and behavioral theories in American group psychotherapy...presents material that is necessary, that should not be passed up, for carrying out historical and empirical research in the fields for group practice. It provides the opportunity to carefully consider the differences between concepts. As well, it will aid in the development of hypotheses. The practitioner will find explanations, guidelines, and judgments about engaging the member and the group in the practice situation. Social workers practicing social group work and developing group work practice theory will find this book useful too...will help to distinguish between the concepts, processes, and goals of social group work, group psychotherapy and T-group."/m-/Social Work with Groups
